NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein wrote that Stanford redshirt sophomore DL Solomon Thomas "looks like a smaller version of [J.J.] Watt."
"[Thomas is] fluid, it looks effortless, he can string moves together," Zierlein noted. "There's a wicked spin move there that he hasn't even fully developed yet. He can move around and play different spots." The 6-foot-3, 275-pounder declared for the draft on Wednesday after posting 62 tackles (15.0 for loss) and eight sacks this past season. Zierlein believes he needs to pack on playing-weight as he enters the NFL, but that aside, is supremely impressed by Thomas' technique. "His hands and feet work in perfect unison and he's always working the blocker's edge. Once he's in that seam," Zierlein wrote, "you're finished."
